Gene details (from Flybase) It is a protein_coding_gene from Drosophila melanogaster.
Based on sequence similarity, it is predicted to have molecular function: amino acid transmembrane transporter activity; gamma-aminobutyric acid:hydrogen symporter activity.
There is experimental evidence that it is involved in the biological process: visual behavior.
4 alleles are reported.
No phenotypic data is available.
It has one annotated transcript and one annotated polypeptide.
Protein features are: Amino acid transporter, transmembrane.
Summary of modENCODE Temporal Expression Profile: Temporal profile ranges from a peak of moderately high expression to a trough of extremely low expression.
Peak expression observed within 12-24 hour embryonic stages.
